Coal Miners Join Tea Partiers in Protesting "Middle ClassElitist Statist Joe"

From Buzzfeed:

MARTINS FERRY, Ohio — Coal miners upset with the Obama administration’s policies on energy protested Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign rally here.

More than 100 coal miners and tea party activists stood on a hill overlooking Biden’s speech holding signs like "Biden said 'no more coal in America'" and “Stop the war on coal, fire Obama.”

Mitchell Metzler a miner and Iraq war veteran, said he came to the protest after finishing his midnight shift at the mine.

“I spent a year in Iraq serving my country, and now they want to take away my job,” he said.

Kevin Hughes, the superintendent at the American Energy Corporation Century Mine in Beallsville, Ohio, which organized the rally of its workers, said the reason they were protesting is simple: President Barack Obama’s regulatory agenda is killing jobs.

“We want to save our jobs. We want to save this valley,” he said.

The article goes on to quote a member of the "Inform on Coworkers and be a good little Maoist to Obama Truth Team" member who talks about how it isn't true there is a war on coal or anything. But wait, I guess he didn't get this memo:


So, obviously, based on the words of Barry and his own nutjob VP, little "Truth team" member is either a liar or being lied to.....or both.

I stand with the coal workers and the Tea Party, not with elitist socialists who want us to eat cake while they party party party!
